CHICAGO – In what could be the worst mainstream release of the summer, “I Love You, Beth Cooper” wastes talent, production values and ultimately time in a cliché-ridden mess that produces little or no real love.

What begins as a promising premise – the nerdy high school valedictorian, Denis (played by a dull, smirking Paul Rust), breaks bad at his graduation speech and proclaims his love for unattainable cheerleader Beth Cooper (Hayden Panettiere, who also plays the cheerleader on TV’s “Heroes”) – devolves into humorless story impossibilities.

‘I Love You Beth Cooper’ opens everywhere Friday, July 10th, and stars Paul Rust, Hayden Panettiere, Jack Carpenter and Alan Ruck, directed by Chris Columbus. Check local theaters for showtimes.

Re: ‘I Love You, Beth Cooper’ Inspires Hatred for the High Schoo

Thank you for your service and kindness, it was much appreciated. In addition to my gratitude, I would like to share with you the best basketball. LeBron James is one of the best basketball players of the last decade, and when such a strong sports personality (and massive ego) gets shown up, people want to see it. That’s why the rumors of a LeBron James gets dunked on video existing are so tantalizing. An undergraduate player named Jordan Crawford dunked on LeBron, and while it was captured, it won’t get on YouTube. Immediately after it happened at the LeBron James Skills Academy, he had Nike seize all tapes. It has been suggested that he get off his cross, use the wood to build a bridge and get over it. However, no quick cash or unsecured loans will produce footage of when LeBron James gets dunked on video.

  • Kid Thing, The

    CHICAGO – Like the awesome Engine Who Could, the mighty Nothing Without a Company stage crafters have constructed another triumph at their new home in Berger Mansion on Chicago’s north side. “The Kid Thing” – written by Sarah Gubbins – is a terse, convincing and emotional play about fear, identity and breeding, and it is performed by its cast of five with utter authenticity. The show has a Thursday-Sunday run at the Berger North Mansion through April 15th, 2017. Click here for more details, including ticket information.

  • Wiz, The

    CHICAGO – When stage theater can cause outbreaks of elation, celebration and joy, then it must be due to Kokandy Productions’ revival of “The Wiz.” The urban reinterpretation of “The Wizard of Oz” story – told through tuneful euphoria and jubilant dance – is ecstatically produced, in every morsel of its stagecraft.
